NAME

       usermapping - user mapping entry file format

DESCRIPTION

       A  usermapping  entry  is  used  to define alias names for a cluster user. The user's name
       known by the scheduling system is known as the cluster user. If the cluster  user  doesn't
       match  the  user  account name on an execution host, the usermapping feature can solve the
       problem.

       Each line in the usermapping entry file specifies a user name and the host(s) where he has
       an account.

       A  list  of  currently  configured  user mapping entries can be displayed via the qconf(1)
       -sumapl option. The contents of each enlisted user mapping entry  can  be  shown  via  the
       -sumap switch. The output follows the usermapping format description. New user entries can
       be created and existing can be modified via the  -aumap,  -mumap  and  -dumap  options  to
       qconf(1).

FORMAT

       A user mapping entry contains two parameters:

   cluster_user
       The cluster_user keyword defines the cluster user name. The rest of the textline after the
       keyword "cluster_user" will be taken as cluster user value.

   remote_user
       The user name on an execution host. Please note that the value for this attribute might be
       overwritten for a certain hostgroups or single host.  Find an example below.

EXAMPLE

       This is a typical user mapping entry for a cluster user mapping:

       cluster_user   peter

       remote_user    peter,[@linux=pet1],[fangorn=peter1]

       The entry will map the user peter which is defined in the cluster system to the user peter
       on all hosts in the cluster except for all hosts which are  referenced  in  the  hostgroup
       @linux.  For  all  these  hosts  the user will be mapped to pet1. For the host fangorn the
       remote user will be peter1.  hostgroup(5) to obtain for more information about that.
